12 Days of Christmas

Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a great start to the holiday season and if not then I hope that it gets better for you.:) Well, I have decided after truly thinking deeply about it that I am going to do 12 Days of Christmas. This will mean that starting Dec 1st I am going to post a new post of some type of Christmas project. It can be a card, scrapbook layout, home decor item: something Christmas related. I do have to say that it will probably be more cards then other projects, but I do hope to have a few different ideas to offer. I have been wanting to do this for a couple of years now and my health and time have finally permitted it. I hope you all enjoy what I have to offer as far as projects and maybe even inspire someone. I get a lot of motivation from other people's blogs when they complete similar ideas such as this so I am hoping this does help as I complete the projects each day.
Thanks for letting me rattle a little. I hope you join me tomorrow as I post my first project. Thanks again!

Quick Update

Well here I am. These last 2 weeks have been a nightmare gone really bad. I hurt my back a week before Thanksgiving and still was not back to normal by the holiday. I was unable to move and didn't leave bed much. I did have 1 of my sons over for Thanksgiving along with 2 of his friends which was very nice. This past Monday my back took a turn for the worst and I ended myself up in the ER. After spending the day there and taking steroids for the past 3 days, I am feeling a hundred times better. I'm not quite back to my norm but I am on the way there thank goodness.
I have a special event happening starting on 12/1 so tune in then to see what I am up to. Thanks and see you then!

Turkey Card

Here is the Thanksgiving card I am sending out this year that I said I would post today. I made 5 cards in this style all together. I did it in assembly line fashion which helped a lot. You wouldn't think that they would take up so much time, but they did. I am also working on some others including some Christmas ones with snowflakes that I will post later. But here are the details for this card:

  • Cricut cart.: Create A Critter
  • Paper: Bazzill
  • Ribbon: Offray
  • Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots
  • Punch: Marvey/Uchida
  • Adhesive: 3M, Scotch

I'm Back!!

Wow! I can't believe that it has been so long since I last posted. I meant to post the after video of my scraproom a week later, but...

I lost all motivation to do anything crafty related. I don't know where I lost it, but it couldn't be found until only a few days ago. :) I have depression along with a few health issues and when one of these health issues act up then the depression kicks in big time. And when my depression kicks in then all motivation goes bye-bye. What has helped the most is I have started selling my cards at a local shop. And now with the holidays coming I need to get some of my card sets into the store for sale. This has helped somewhat with getting my motivation going in the right direction. I have a few ideas that I can't wait to get going on and should start as early as tomorrow. I have been working on Thanksgiving cards that are almost done. I'm waiting on some clear bags and boxes that I ordered online to get here so I can place them in the store.

Well, that is enough for now. I really needed to get this out so that I can get going on one of the few things that make me happy...crafting! I will have some new pics up tomorrow/Saturday. Thanks for reading this. :)
